Karnataka Deputy CM Shivakumar leads major political shift as over 20 leaders abandon BJP and JDS to join Congress.

By | September 16, 2023

Over 20 leaders and workers from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Janata Dal Secular (JDS) have joined the Congress party in Karnataka, dealing a blow to the ruling BJP. The state is currently going through a political crisis as the BJP has not yet appointed a Leader of Opposition in the assembly.

In a surprising turn of events, Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar launched a surgical strike on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Janata Dal Secular (JDS) by successfully poaching more than 20 leaders and workers from both parties to join the Congress. This move has dealt a severe blow to the BJP, which is currently going through its worst phase in the state.

The absence of a Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the assembly has added to the BJP’s woes. With the recent defections, the party is now left grappling with an even weaker position in the state. This development has given a significant advantage to the Congress, which has been trying to regain its foothold in Karnataka.

DK Shivakumar, known for his political acumen and strategic moves, has orchestrated this surgical strike, strengthening the Congress’s position and weakening the opposition parties. The move is expected to have a significant impact on the political landscape of Karnataka.

The defections highlight the growing discontent within the BJP and JDS, with leaders and workers finding a more promising future under the Congress banner. This could potentially lead to a reshuffling of power dynamics in the state, with the Congress gaining momentum and the BJP and JDS struggling to maintain their stronghold.

As the dust settles, all eyes are now on the upcoming assembly session to see how the BJP and JDS respond to this setback and how the Congress capitalizes on its newfound strength. The political landscape in Karnataka is undoubtedly set for a dramatic shift in the coming days..
